Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee protested in a letter to President Obama that no one in his state government had received notice that 760 of the estimated 50,000 unaccompanied minors who have entered the country illegally in the past several months have been sent to the Volunteer State.
Whether the impeachment of President Obama is "on the table," "off the table" or under the table is a matter hotly disputed these days by Democrats and Republicans as each side jockeys for position on the volatile issue of illegal immigration between now and the fall elections. Ironically, say the Republicans, it is the Democrats who are talking up impeachment.
Congress and the American people "will not stand" for altering or suspending the nation's immigration law by executive action, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said in a Senate speech Monday.
President Obama is planning "very significant" executive action on immigration by summer's end, according to a senior White House official.
